A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent between a website and your web browser, enabling the website to function properly and the website owner to collect helpful information about your visit.
A cookie cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites.
If a cookie is a “session” cookie, it will expire at the end of your browsing session.
“Persistent” cookies remain on your device even after you close your browser; this helps to remember your preferences ready for the next time you visit.
